This Week’s Summer Meal Plan

Happy Monday! I hope this week is starting out well for you. If you haven’t made your meal plan for this week it’s a great time to make your plan. If you need a few dinner ideas that won’t heat up the house scroll down and check out what’s cooking at our house this week.

Our weather is always a little uncertain this time of year. Sometimes it’s warmer for a few days, then cooler for a few days. Who knows what this week will bring until it comes.

But to be sure I’m prepared, I try to keep warm weather meals on my meal plan. I also try to add a few meal that we don’t mind eating on cooler days too.

This week we have a few chicken dinners planned. I’ll be using the chicken meal packages I have tucked away in the freezer for these meals. If you want to make your own chicken meat packages take a peek at the chicken freezer cooking ebook, it has 8 meat packages you can assemble in about an hour.

My son loves hamburgers and warm weather means we can grill them more often, which makes him happy. If it’s a cooler day, we’ll have homemade baked fries. If it’s a warmer day, we’ll be enjoying macaroni salad with our burgers.

I’ve included a breakfast for dinner on our meal plan too. It makes for a quick dinner one night of the week for me and it’s a cheap dinner too.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

Here are our Meals for this Week,

This is an easy freezer meal to make for those busy nights when you don’t have time to cook. This easy barbecue chicken freezer meal takes only minutes to prepare for the freezer. What’s great is it’s so versatile you can prepare it in the crockpot, in the oven or even grilled. We love it grilled the best. If you haven’t tried freezer recipes before giving this one a try, I’m sure you’ll love how easy it is to make.

  1. Our weather sounds like yours…one day it will be almost chilly, the next day super hot. It’s hard to know what to wear or whether or not to use the oven for dinner that night 😉

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. That’s so true Erin. I think you get much bigger temperature swings than we do here. This year has been much cooler and damper than years past but we have had a few 90 degree days mixed in.

      I hope you have a great week too.
